2. It's true what he says about usually knowing the hero

will get out of jams. You never know what will happen in Game of Thrones.

6. Now that was funny! Thanks!

It's just amazing how unusual it is for an author to do what he's doing. You need that many characters so people can survive all the mayhem.

7. I have concluded that he is a sadist.

He just likes to fuck with our heads.

9. Well, He is a NY Jets Football Fan

That's where he gets his inspiration.

12. He must have a sadistic streak

to write those scenes, like Theon Greyjoy's castration, and the sheer pleasure Joffrey gets from tormenting women.

8. I've already given up on the books

I finished Dance with Dragons...
I don't care if he never releases the other books...
I'll just go with the HBO series.

That book with the afterword "A Feast of Crows" was the only book, that after I read it, I almost threw across the street.

14. I only made it through the second book.

It was a huge, huge disappointment, after loving the first book.

17. I totally agree.

10. Unlike most, I have no problems at all with him killing off characters . . . .

It makes the stories that much more intriguing and (for lack of a better term), realistic.

In reality, the good guy doesn't always win, the prince doesn't always get the princess, and not all the nice people live happily every after.

In my opinion, it's somewhat refreshing to see good guys that aren't invincible.

You never know what is going to happen.
